Acapulco Confirms More Calls for 2017

Acapulco has announced that it has 28 confirmed cruise ship calls this year, compared to 18 during 2016, representing a 64 percent increase for this upcoming season despite Holland America’s announcement about their route adjustment.

The port said it has scheduled meetings with Holland America’s executives to present them with ongoing security advances.

With 10 more cruise ships this year, the destination marketing office said it will continue to promote port operations to attract more ships, in collaboration with cruise lines. Calling this year are Norwegian, Regent, Silversea, Oceania, Crystal, Global, Saga, Hapag Lloyd and Phoenix Reisen.

The office highlighted that Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings has operated in Acapulco with zero incidents in recent years and that Norwegian used its Acapulco operation as a case study for Lima, Peru. Thus, Peruvian authorities will visit Acapulco to experience firsthand how the port works with the city for tours and excursions, supported by local travel agencies, tour operators and other businesses.

Cruise operations in the Port of Acapulco are also supported by the Center for Tourist Attention and Protection (CAPTA), providing tourism and safety assistance, according to the destination office, which stated that federal, state and municipal authorities have reiterated their commitment to the successful operation of cruise ships in Acapulco.
